More of the same for the Brownies this week — brief flashes of ability, head-scratching play calls, and turnovers in the redzone. Watching this team play every week for the last two years has pretty much devolved into three hours of me muttering to myself in dirty sweatpants, a ritual so sad that the writers of Manchester by the Sea would cry watching.
0-14 and 1-29 in their last 30, we are just 2 games away from the imperfect season and the parade that follows it. Here’s what’s worth noting and what we learned from this week’s loss to the Ravens:
1.) You probably won’t win a game when you let Joe Flacco run for a TD.
2.) This offense is very bad without Joe Thomas.
3.) The “WHY?” sign won the day.
4.) The Browns have single handedly made Benjamin Watson relevant in 2017. 12 of his 45 receptions have come against this secondary, as well as 165 of his 347 yards (47%), and 1 of his 3 TD’s this season.
5.) Bill Mitchell is an idiot. People don’t go to Browns games due to depression, not political parties.
6.) Someone should inform Gregg Williams that it’s helpful if you’re SS isn’t starting plays 100 yards back from the line of scrimmage.
7.) Hue Jackson on the sidelines somehow gets more and more laughable every week.
8.) As it turns out, tickets to Browns games are quite literally worthless.
Another day another L for the Factory of Sadness. The Bears game next week is winnable, but more than likely another L to another QB passed on. It feels like no team will lay down against the Browns because they don’t want to be the ones to lose to one of the most incompetent teams ever assembled. Get your tickets to Cleveland now, because the parade is well within our grasp.
PS – A million dollars to who ever can explain to me what the fuck is going on in this photo.
